Difficult Loves

Difficult Loves Album Cover
Stained glass St George slaying a dragon

This album features Tom Schroeder (vocals, guitars, bass), Dave Kapell (vocals, guitars, piano, organ, accordion, mandolin), Jim Clifford (vocals, bass, piano, guitar, charango), and Tim Behm (drums). Recorded in 1995, we were all going through major relationship breakups with our significant others around the same time. It was devastating, but at least we had each other and this music to help us through. We use many ambient recordings to heighten the intimacy of this album, among them are snippets of conversation, a choir on the beach in Mexico, sounds of playing catch, a phone answering machine message, and a thunderstorm. No one said love is easy.
